This morning I took the boys for a walk to the farmers market which is a mile from the house. It was such a pretty day, and a very pleasant walk. We got a acorn squash, zucchinis, little pumpkins, and green peppers. Hunter took his "lovey" (i... Read more

My days feel so full sometimes. I can juggle multiple things at once, but I usually don't want to. I need a breather every once in a while. A few minutes in my day where I can just do nothing. For some crazy reason I thought it would be a go... Read more

Hello everyone! It's been a while since I've written a blog. I've had some health issues, and relatives have had health issues, and my little Hunter got diagnosed with autism, so I've been busy. Everyone is recovering from their health is... Read more

My stepdad is having open heart surgery next week. He has 90% blockages in both valves! We really don't understand how he's been walking around like this! He has other things that will make this surgery riskier. He has COPD, emphysema, and typ... Read more

This last month I stayed at my 134lbs because I got lazy. I've felt run down and just generally crappy. I'm sure my leg injury added a bit to that feeling, but I'm healed up for the most part and ready to continue my training for my 5k obstacl... Read more

My sisters surgery went well. They removed her gallbladder, and fixed an umbilical hernia that she didn't know she had. My stepdad didn't get to have his surgery because he failed his stress test, and they found out that he has a faulty heart ... Read more

I got the results of my MRI today and it shows no new stress fracture. She says the pain is from a stress reaction from overtraining. It could have caused a break if I continued upping my mileage without proper rest. Since I listened to my body... Read more

I just realized that my sister, step-dad, and ex-husband are all having their surgeries tomorrow. My sister is getting her gallbladder removed. Did you know your more likely to get stones if you start losing weight, and then have a cheat day? ... Read more

My exhusband's surgery is scheduled on the 21st of this month. It will be skull based unless scar tissue causes complications with that approach. They can't put the chemo directly into the tumor like they wanted because of how the tumor is con... Read more

I got the results of my xray and it shows no fracture, but splinter fracture sometimes don't show up until they're healed and you do a comparison xray. If the pain and swelling is not improved in a week I will have to get an MRI. I'm still ... Read more

I went to the doctor today because I've had the weirdest pain in the front of my lower leg for about 2 weeks. When I put pressure on my knee or shin I get this god awful burning pain and the sensation that my skin is going to spit open. It's als... Read more

I forgot to write my blog about my weight loss from March to April. To summarize, I went from 135lbs to 134lbs. I lost a pound in a month. I have been so focused on my race that I completely put my weight out of my mind. This was fine for me... Read more
The racing Pickle- 8 miles of random thoughts
Saturday, April 02, 2016      5 comments

Today was my race, and I did awesome! I averaged a 10 minute mile pace the whole race. I only stopped to walk at the water stands. I haven't mastered running while drinking. I always spill it all over me! Here are some of the thoughts that ran... Read more
Quiet brain!

I woke up this morning with awful anxiety. I just have too much in my brain this week, and it's like steam is building up in there and needs to be released. If I was only a tea kettle, life would be easier. My son Jackson is on spring break,... Read more

So my body is getting to the point where I am getting very lean in certain areas, like my shoulders, breast plate, neck, wrists, and quads. It's not a bad thing. I don't mind that my muscles are becoming more visible, but it makes other areas ... Read more
